Johnathan East - Melissa Lyrics


Now, people say she was always wild, even in her younger days
Spent many a night in the backseat of a car
I guess she never quiet grew out of the hell she used to raise
But, Lord, these days I think it’s gone too far
I met her in a bar room, somewhere down in New Orleans
Sippin’ whiskey straight out of the jug
She was the sweetest thing I thought I’d ever seen
Lord, it didn’t take long to fall in love
Now, I’d done about anything to keep her by my side
But, nothing I could give that girl, could keep her satisfied.

(Chorus)
Ah, Melissa, can’t you see now what you’ve done
You can’t even look me in the eye
Now, it’s been real and God knows it’s been fun
Goodbye, Melissa, goodbye.

I got myself a steady job and we tried to settle down
I was saving up to buy that diamond ring
But, she just couldn’t stay out of them honky tonks downtown
Guess that domestic life just never was her thing
She found a man just a little bit better than the one she had back home
Left a letter by the bedroom dresser, took my truck and she was gone.

(Repeat Chorus)

I guess seeing me tonight, may come as a surprise
I can see the thoughts race through your mind
There’s no need to worry girl, go ahead and dry your eyes
And everything will be just fine
There’s no use to go on, about the things you put me through
It wouldn’t change you anyway; guess there’s nothing I can do.

(Repeat Chorus)
